Mike Peralta's "I Want to Be Sad" is upbeat yet electronic melancholy and dreamy. It tells the story of a young man who sees sadness everywhere in the world, especially in his own inter personal relationships. He seems to see that there is more to the world than the way he sees it, and wants to change who he is inside, but ultimately seems to be losing the battle within himself, for now.


"I Want To Be Sad"
by Mike Peralta

Pick me up for me and you
and the stars ain't looked the same for a year or two.
Am I standing outside or am I alone inside my head?
Don't know what I want
Don't know what to fight or whats going on.

And i want to be sad

They told you how to be true.
They looked but did not see you.
They saw not a star
They saw not a star but I see you.
And would I still sob if I knew love or love from you?

And i want to be sad

If I threw out loud a new tone now
would a new tone sound through you?
Even you don't know do I know how?
Would you come too?

And i want to be sad
